Just for you...

Well I don't know about anyone else, but the colours on this card reminds me of those sweets I used to have as a child, fruit salads........ lol!!!
I just love this Sweet Ebony stamp at the mo, I've coloured it using my Whisper pens, which I am ashamed to admit I don't use as often as I should. The papers are a mix of Papermania retro florals, DCWV and Basic Grey. Sentiment stamp is from Cuddly Buddly and the brads are from that cheapie walk around store WHAT!!!
I have officially finished work today for the summer hols, YAY!! 6 weeks off. My daughters are off school today and tomorrow due to the teachers strike, but will go in on Friday for their last day at this school. They are moving to a new school come September. ooooo fabby news by the way, we found out today that my eldest son Tom has passed his entrance test to study for an apprenticeship...I am soooooooooooooooooooo proud of him. There were only 12 places available and 52 applicants. He has also got himself a part time job, which he started last night, working in the kitchen of a very nice hotel/country club....hehehehe!!!! washing dishes....pmsl.... I wonder how long he will stick at it though, he works from 5pm til midnight. Well at least it should teach him the value of money now, I hope. He's a typical fussy teenager who loves all the latest gear and yippeeeeee he can now go and buy for himself.
Well that's my bit of news for today. Hope you are all well and happy, love & best wishes to everyone who kindly takes the time to visit my 'lil oasis xx vicki xx

O yes fruit salads yummy! Great card too, colours do look good together.
How lucky are you, I still have 5 days left at work! Can't wait to finish.
Well done Tom, I can understand how you feel. And a new job to, my Nicki starts a new job when she gets back from holiday, She'll be working in a hotel, waiting on tables and bar work. I'm hoping she'll start buying her own pointe shoes! Wonder if Tom will start doing the washing up at home? Mine fight over who's turn it is lol.
Enjoy the holiday x Vicki

Hi Vicki, I am also loving the Sweey Ebony stamps at the moment. Got 2 last week and waiting for 2 more to arrive. I just love the colors. My daughter is just moving in to her new house then she will have to do her own dishes for a change maybe Tom could teach her a thing or two! lol
